I have just downloaded iPlanet Calendar 2.1 from the iPlanet Download web site.
I have used
gzip -d to uncompress
it. I then use the standard native Solaris tar
command to untar the file.
However, during the extraction of the files from the archive, the
process aborts with the following message:<BR>
The tar files generated for download use the GNU tar utility.
In <I>most</I> cases the GNU tar
(also known as "gtar") and the native Solaris "tar" commands are compatible.
However, in this case they are not.
At this time, you must obtain a copy of the GNU tar utility and use it to
extract the files from the archive. Following are links to where you can
freely download precompiled packaged binaries of the GNU tar utility:
